“Friends In High Places are amped and ready to put on a great after party tonight,” said APN Outdoor general manager Phil Clemas this morning.

“Not only will we celebrate the finalists and metal winners but we’ll also showcase the some large LED technology, similar to what APN Outdoor will be using when building their new Digital Billboard Network in Auckland’s CBD in July.

“We have worked with the management at the Viaduct Events Centre to ensure our six Minis have somewhere to park and wait for guests keen on free rides to the Studio Venue in K Rd for our party.

“Those who want rides will need to present their VIP passes (for the party) to get the freebie. Otherwise, there will be plenty of taxis also available … unfortunately, not free!

“We will have two music areas – downstairs in the main auditorium, DylanC will play sets from 10pm. Upstairs, FIHP have created a ‘quieter’ space where Gene Rivers will plays his sets. You’ll be able to hear yourself think in this space … so great for those who want to chat in a more relaxed and chilled environment.”

Photos and videos from the after party will be posted to the official Friends in High Places Facebook page following the event; www.facebook.com/FriendsInHighPlaces.
